Community cleanup programs such as I’s on the Street in New Westminster help and support those who live on the streets, are at risk of homelessness and mental health clients. I’s on the Street, a work and training opportunity that provides connection to the community, work experience and pocket money, is a social enterprise that increases self-esteem and a sense of belonging.
Sponsored and run by the New Westminster Homeless Coalition (NWHC), I’s on the Street operates three mornings a week doing street cleanup in the New Westminster Downtown. Startup funding was provided by the New Westminster Community Development Society and the program is a collaborative solution between the NWHC and the New Westminster Business Improvement Association.
